Ernest Thompson Seton Letter
View Full Text
A letter written to Edgar Robinson from Ernest Seton regarding the drawings he made for the building of the Pueblo of the Seven Fires on Springfield College's East Campus. In his letter, Seton indicates that since he was lacking time and information about the project his drawings are simply suggestions which are open to change. Robinson and Seton were pioneers in the Boy Scout movement, both having an interest in camping and the outdoors, and were instrumental in the building and design of the Pueblo of the Seven Fires on Springfield College's East Campus. Robinson brought the many ideas of boys’ work and physical education from the YMCA and Boy Scouts of America to Springfield College starting the Freshman Camp, a tradition that continues today.
